What's On


Cowboy Bebop: The Movie

An electrifying full-tilt trip into a vast, colourful and dangerous galaxy

“A brilliant feature-length anime that's good enough to deserve mention in the same breath as Akira, Ghost in the Shell, and Spirited Away” -

The year is 2071. When villains blow up a tanker truck on Highway One, a deadly virus is released, killing hundreds of innocent people. This is just the beginning of a greater threat to humankind. Fearing a more devastating biochemical attack, a significant reward is offered for the successful capture and arrest of the evil culprits.

Bored with their current situation, Spike and his rag-tag crew of bounty hunters aboard the Spaceship Bebop accept the challenge wholeheartedly – determined to track down the bad guys one way or another and cash in the reward. Ahead of them is an adventure like nothing they have ever imagined.

This big screen version of the cult anime TV series is brought to vibrant life by the famed Japanese Sunrise Animation Studios.
